Alex Guskov was born in 1947 in the city of Kuibyshev. After graduating from school in 1966 he entered Kuibyshev polytechnical institute. At the institute he studied electronic devices. After the graduation in 1972, A.Guskov worked at the same Institute as the research scientist and the docent till 1977. One of the interesting problems being solved in this period was the problem of stability of nonlinear electronic system. In 1977 A.Guskov entered the Institute of metallurgy of A. Baykov of the Russian Academy of Sciences as a postgraduate student. In one of his problems he has found a resonance between the velocity of evaporation of solid from a surface of a material and frequency of modulation of the laser radiation operating on this surface. He received a Ph.D. degree in 1982 in Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
